Bonjour mes beautés! I apologize for the one year hiatus. 2016 was an emotional year for me, I was escaping the lowest point of my life and trying to reinvent myself as I made my move to Chicago. I wanted erase everything behind me and in a sense stay quiet. I had so many things I wanted to focus on like: networking, getting fit, eating healthier, creating a name for myself, explore my career options, and experience all of my Chicago firsts (like deep dish pizza of course).
I put blogging on my back burner because I didn’t feel confidant in my writing, the creativity wasn’t flowing, and fashion blogging gets expensive when you don’t have sponsors lol. But I told myself that once a week I will have a blog post ready every Thursday. I’m gonna see it as a quite time to release my creative juices again. I took on a second side gig so I can justify my luxurious splurges now. ^_^
Since September 7, 2017 is the rebirth of aliciamaikaoinc, I wanted something fresh so I went for a baby blue off the shoulder shirt gifted from my cousin Ashley. I’ve been obsessed with black jeans, skirts, shorts anything you name it. You can’t really see it but the details on this pair of cropped jeans has frayed ends. I’m very simple when it comes to my style. I prefer simple silhouettes and statement pieces that are classics that can be worn over and over.
The highlight of this outfit is my dainty jewelry. I bought this cute gold necklace from etsy seller LoveEmilyD. I saw her necklace on a hand full of girls in Chicago, and thought to myself “I NEED YOU.” The Chicago flag necklace is quite popular and can be bought at locally at Foursided. They have an array of cute stationary, gifts, novelty items. I encourage you all to check em’ out.
